Gur Wali Patti....

Winter season is something that I miss a lot since I have moved to Bangalore.

When ever my sister over the phone mention's that they are enjoying moongfali, til wali gajak, gur wali patti, garam doodh while sitting in rajai with angeethi in the room to normalize inside room temperature..... I just  feel like catching next flight to north India so that I can enjoy this weather and be with them .....

 Winter season is coming to an end and I do not know when I'll be going to north India in 2013.....missing you all ....

Ok, Let me stop begin emotional and share my first attempt to preapre Gur wali patti for Lohri 2013. ( til mooli ... din wade te raat choti)

Ingredients for Gur wali patti:

1 cup grated gur /jaggrey
2 tsp water
oil to grease a plate/ surface
1 cup roasted moonfali/groundnuts
few chopped cashews

Steps to cook Gur wali Patti:

  • Roast moonfali in a pan until they become little brown and crunchy.
  • Take one non stick pan and add 2 tsp water and grated Gur. and cook on medium low heat.
  • Cook melted gur for another 5-10 mins until  it starts turning red/dark brown in colour.
  • Now to test whether gur is ready for patti or not, pour one drop of gur in a cup of water and try making a small ball out of it. when you bite this ball it should be crunchy.
  • At this point add roasted moonfali, cashews and keep on stirring.
  • Apply oil on one plate. or flat surface.
  • Pour gur and moonfali mixture on plate and try to give it some shape using ladle while it's hot. It's necessary to give it some shape now otherwise it is difficult to give it shape when it's cold.
  • let it cool for some time and then you can break it into pieces and store in an air tight container.
This was my first attempt to prepare some kind of patti and I am  kind of satisfy with the outcome. Still I am finding that something is missing in this as this is not what I get in market... I'll continue my search and trials until happiness comes to me :)

I am sending this post to My Legume Love Affair - 56. Susan,the well seasoned cook started this event and has been running it for years. This month Lisa takes over, congratulations and all the best :) Check out the archives to get new ideas for using legumes.

Happy cooking!
